Snowman Winter Ten Frame Printable PDF Activity
What is the importance of the ten frames and the concept of number sense? The printable ten frames allows a child to subitize or visualize the numbers of how many items there are without actually needing to count them. If they work with a tens frame often enough they will learn this early math skill of subitizing.

The ten frames that has snowflakes on it would work great for counting. Preschoolers can count each frame and then look at the corresponding numbers.
You can also cut apart the ten frame from the number and have your child match the two up.

- Do a Dot Ten Frames – Have your child dot the ten frame templates with the correct number of dots.
